I would like to say that Donovan's Hobby and Scuba has been very fun and positive in my life. I found that if you have questions about diving and gear Bill Donovan will answer your questions. I have not yet had one negative experience with him or his staff. I also found that meeting with Bill and his staff has opened up opportunities in the diving community to meet other diving enthusiasts who share the same passion as you would in SCUBA Diving.

My experience with Donovan's Hobby Center was extremely negative. I would not recommend going to Donovan's Hobby shop to get your SCUBA certification even if you have to travel out of the state. Bill Donovan is very unwilling to accommodate his students. From my experience he is disappointingly unprofessional (use of profanities) and unwilling to accommodate any interests of his students. It seems as though half of the weekend classroom work was sales pitches about his overpriced lines of SCUBA goods. The classroom time is not used efficiently. For the pool dives, even after calling to confirm my gear was ready before the class and it was not ready for me. In my experience not all of the details on the class are fully disclosed before beginning the class. If you are taking SCUBA diving for recreation and enjoyment this class is not recommended!
